1969 would be a lot of fun, although I think very few of us could come up with 50 albums for that year that we actually know (as opposed to filling up the bottom of the list with albums that we've heard once or twice or where we know a couple of the songs). I'd be happy with 80s or female vocalists, too. Not sure I like the Billboard number ones idea because there's such a limited number of possibilities. That seems more suited to some kind of tournament.
I could probably expand it to the entire '60s if it would make it easier. I'd give a long while before the lists are due (probably October-ish) because the '60s are so vast it is kind of humbling as someone who grew up thinking there was a musical explosion in the 2000s.
On the other hand, for the singles, I think just 1969 would be great. The sixties are so vast, I'd be leaving out tons of things I love to death. Maybe do 50 singles but just 20 albums or so?
